BMW Australia has announced the 2019 pricing for its second-generation X4 range, set to arrive in September.
The X4 will be available across one diesel and three petrol variants, with the new X4 M40i M Performance sitting at the pinnacle of the range.
BMW has made the M Sport package, including adaptive suspension, standard across the X4 range which is all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic only. For those looking to personalize the coupe SUV further, BMW is also now offering X4 customers options from its ‘Individual Programme’ including a selection of bespoke colours and trims.
As revealed at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the X4 has also grown in length and width over its first-generation predecessor, allowing it to gain 27mm more legroom and additional luggage space.
The new X4 range will now kick off from $76,900 for the X4 xDrive 20i M Sport, representing a $6085 jump over the previous 20i entry-point. It is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder petrol producing 135kW/290Nm.
Coming standard on the xDrive 20i M Sport are 19-inch alloy wheels, a 10.25-inch touchscreen with DAB+ and built-in nav, cloth/leather upholstery, sports front seats, head-up display, automatic tailgate, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rear mirrors, LED headlights, tail-lights and DRLs, automated park assist and three-zone climate control.
While the xDrive 20i M Sport comes standard with ‘Lane Departure warning’, AEB is still missing from the X4 range.
The xDrive 20d M Sport is identically equipped to the 20i, though carries a $3000 premium over the 20i at $79,900 and is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel producing 140kW/400Nm. It is now the only diesel in the range.
The xDrive 30i M Sport now sits in the middle of the range. (overseas model shown)
Moving up to the $83,900 xDrive 30i adds a sportier version of the eight-speed automatic transmission, 20-inch alloy wheels, full leather upholstery, a 12.3-inch touchscreen, active cruise control, ‘Lane keep assist’ and adaptive LED headlights. It is powered by a 185kW/350Nm version of the 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine.
Sitting at the top, representing a $20,045 jump over the outgoing 35d flagship, is the $109,900 xDrive M40i M Performance. This car scores a 256kW/500Nm version of the turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six engine from BMW’s performance-oriented stable.
At this spec you can expect 21-inch alloys, ‘M Sport differential’, a specially tuned version of the ‘M adaptive suspension’, ‘M Sport brakes’, a panoramic glass sunroof, 16-speaker harman/kardon premium audio system, ambient interior lighting, wood interior trim, heated front seats with lumbar support and the ‘Connected Drive Freedom Package’ which includes a 24/7 concierge.
Leather interior and a 12.3-inch multimedia screen become available at the xDrive 30i level, but can be optioned on the 20i and 20d. (overseas model shown)
Option packages available on the 20i and 20d include the $2200 ‘Innovation Package’ that adds ‘High-beam assist’, adaptive LED headlights, wireless phone charging and an upgrade to the 12.3-inch touchscreen. Or, the ‘Comfort Package’ which adds woodgrain interior trim options, interior ambient lighting, lumbar support and heated seating for the front passengers and a 12-speaker premium audio system.
Also available on only the 20i and 20d is the $8,700 ‘Enhance Package’ which essentially matches those lower spec variants to the 30i M Sport trim level.
